My Students

I am a first year soccer coach and we plan to have a successful season. However, we need the support of the community to receive equipment to bring out the best of each player.

My players are mainly first generation Americans that come from very hard working parents.

My players are hard working students that try their hardest inside and outside the classroom. They need to believe that more than their coach. Teachers care for them.

My Project

My students need sweatshirts, captain arm bands, soccer balls, and other equipment to bring out the best of their abilities. When I was in Junior high, I remember not having the proper equipment to use during a soccer game or during practice. I experienced not having any soccer bags to carry my soccer equipment; I had to hold them on my hand when going to games. Also, I want to provide sweatshirts for my students to identify themselves as the athletes of the school and to use when going to an away game. I want to be able to provide everything they need. I want them to have success during the season and inspire them to come back the next year. What I envision for my players is the opportunity to have a college level practice in junior high. I know not every player may play in college; however, students can learn skills on the field that they can bring into the classroom.

Students would be more active and become more critical thinkers.

Students would want to inspire others to try and be athletes. They will be able to apply the skills on the field into their classroom and train to become better students. Student athletes are the best players!
